Oh and close your hatch, otherwise your Jeep will taco. hahahaha

I haven't done anything with my XJ in a few months (since the end of January). Right now it is sitting in a yard with the roof caved in and in need of a new front end. I have another d30 housing for free with my name all over it, I just need $ and time to sleeve the unibody rails and chop the roof and cage the thing. I can't wait to get back to wheeling.

I probably woulda tried w/o prep just for the helluva it. A recovery strap, low 1st gear, and 4LO is a recipe for disaster ...
